Muskie on The Fly

Ever think about chasing Muskie on Fly. One of my only regrets in filming for SOULFISH 2 is not having had the opportunity to make it up to film some Muskie fishing with Robert Tomes. Robert is a very competent Muskie angler and author of a great book, Muskie on The Fly. Here's a few photos Robert shared with me from a fall outing in Wisconsin.

Muskie are a gorgeous fish and fierce predator. Making them one of the best and most aggressive fish to catch on a fly in North America. I tell people all the time they are the closest thing we have to a Taimen on our continent. Known for shocking top water takes, huge jumps and long strong fights, Muskie are a more than worth while addiction.

Keep an eye out for Robert on the show circuit this winter doing Muskie on The Fly presentations. For more info, take a look at this Article published in the New York Times about Robert and his new book.
